Corey is an excellent and patient instructor. It had been over a year since I kitesurfed last, and my original instruction had been in very light wind. Corey got me riding upwind and transitioning in the strong Maui winds within 3 sessions. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a top-notch rider and instructor out on Maui.

I hadn’t been on a kite since 2008, I explained my experience level and where my lack of confidence was coming from to Cory. We did a thorough safety talk and he had me out on the water in no time. When I came he gave me a few pointers and my next problem to deal with was how to get back down wind. I had a great time and Cory was able to get on his kite and coach me from the water and show off some big airs in the second half of the lesson. Thanks Cory!

Corey is a legend. Solid instruction, super safe. If your on the fence about taking a lesson, quit screwing around and pull the trigger. You won’t regret it. Thanks Corey!

Corey was an awesome instructor. I have been kite boarding a few times before. Corey was able to give me tips that made my experience so much better. Totally worth taking a lesson with him.

Out of the many options for lessons in the area im extremely happy with my choice with these guys. Corey my instructor, was amazing (and one of the best riders on the beach). I hadn’t kited in a few years and wanted to pick up where I left off. Corey helped me get everything back quickly with real time tips and corrections and after my second day was probably better than before. He even was in the water with me coaching me as I rode. I had so much fun and am trying to extend my trip now so that I can come back and kite more with these guys. 10/10!

Corey was a great local guide and gear rental solution for my recent visit to Maui! He was proactively responsive to my inquiry and had fantastic follow through with whatever gear I needed ready to go at the agreed time. Plus he has lots of fun patterns in his branded hats to purchase as a nice memento. Highly Recommend!

Just finished up my first Kite Surfing Lesson with Corey. He was very thorough in teaching me the basics and most importantly how to stay safe. He was very professional and patient with me throughout the process which made it very enjoyable and a fun! He is deffently a master at his teaching craft and I would highly reccomend him if your thinking about getting into Kite Surfing! His energetic and positive attitude made the entire experience something I will never forget! 5 stars.

Corey is unreal! Took a couple of lessons in Utah before I came out here and got pretty injured. Learned more in my first lesson than combined over there! Felt super safe and comfortable, and he just explains it in a way that makes sense! He is super patient and the lessons are fun! If you want to learn to Kiteboard, Corey is your guy. Thank you for the incredible lessons 🙏🏼

Starting as an absolute beginner, I’m incredibly happy with the progress I made after taking lessons over the course of 2 months. My instructor Corey was especially helpful. Being out there on your own it’s important to have an instructor that’s attentive to your progress, and that can explain some of these concepts that are normally more “intuition” based in ways that a beginner can understand. Looking forward to getting out in those waves later in December.

Just finished my 2nd day of kiteboarding lessons with Corey and I AM SO HAPPY AND EXCITED! I was able to get up on the board today and complete a couple short runs in both directions! 🙂 Having zero board experience prior, I’m thrilled Corey was able to teach me how to confidently put on the board, fly the kite, talk me through board and kite positions so I could give it the right amount of power to lift me up and stand on the board safely. He’s awesome! Super attentive and calm. I never felt stressed out even when I crashed the kite, he would calmly tell me what to do to fix it through the radio helmet. The communication really put my mind at ease and makes me feel prepared for any scenario. He also completely customizes the lesson to you so you can feel comfortable and confident while getting the most out of your session. Thanks so much! I CAN’T WAIT for my next lesson on Monday!
